We are in the middle of a serious rough patch for trans people in the USA.
After Donald Trump's trans ban in the military and the Supreme Court upholding said ban, 2019 is not off to a good start for trans people. So seeing even one modicum of hope for trans people can help.
Tiffany Monroe, a 22-year-old YouTuber, has been walking us through her journey as a transgender woman.

Trans women often have trouble dating because men are the worst.
But Tiffany shared that she was trans with this one guy and this was what she got back:

"It is the bare minimum but when you are in a society that treats trans women like dirt, we can be happy about the little wins we do get," Monroe said.
Some of the internet was really moved by this:

Transgender people are often the victims of hate crimes.
In 2018, 26 trans people were murdered.
The government's continued agenda against the transgender community has no doubt contributed to the rise of violence against them.

Sadly, even with this, Monroe received hate.
We won't share it here because it's horrendous.
But we will share what she said back to the haters:

But just remember: the goal here is to make this the new LOW.
Not a high. We have a lot of work to do, fellow citizens.
